Notre Dame Fiesta Bowl Depth Chart

There weren’t a whole lot of changes to the Notre Dame football depth chart throughout the 2021 season. Heading into the Fiesta Bowl though injuries and some movement from younger players has resulted in a few changes as the Irish prepare for Oklahoma State on Saturday.

Notre Dame’s Offensive Depth Chart

  • The big news here is the reinsertion of Blake Fisher into the starting lineup with Josh Lugg lost to an injury.
  • Michael Carmody, who started a game in place of FIsher when he was hurt, isn’t on the two deep at all.
  • For the first time this year, the backup quarterback spot is listed with an “OR” designation between Drew Pyne and Tyler Buchner.
  • With Kyren Williams opting out of the Fiesta Bowl, Chris Tyree and Logan Diggs are listed as co-starters. Audric Estime, the third back isn’t listed.

Notre Dame’s Defensive Depth Chart

  • Sophomore Jordan Botelho is listed as a backup ROVER instead of a VYPER as he was all season. Freeman said this is being done for the Fiesta Bowl only and then they’ll see where his best fit is. He credited the play of Isaiah Foskey and Justin Ademilola of limiting the opportunities for Botelho at DE.
  • Freshman Ryan Barnes makes his first appearance on the two deep at CB backing up Cam Hart. Ramon Henderson, was previously listed as Hart’s backup.
  • Henderson is no longer Hart’s backup because he is now the starting free safety where he is backed up by Xavier Watts.
  • Freshman Will Schweitzer makes his first appearance on the depth chart as a reserve VYPER behind Foskey and Ademilola. Its doubtful we see much of him but significant that the staff included him.
  • Houston Griffith remains listed as the starter at strong safety.

Notre Dame’s Special Teams Depth Chart

  • With Kyren Williams out, Matt Salerno takes over punt return duties. With an interim special teams coordinator I’d imagine we just see a lot of fair catching on punts.

    Hahahaha, because ND NEVER calls FC on punts (except for 99% of the time lol)

  2. UCLA pulls a scumbag move and leaves NC State high-and-dry before their bowl game.
    Something about head coaches named Kelly. Is there a douchebag gene?

  3. Well,the Hokies just out-Shamrocked ND !
    Helmets for the Pinstripe Bowl will have NY Yankees logo on them instead of the school’s VT.

    But who cares? Pro team, college team…same business, just different tax rates.
    “This Space for Rent”

    1. The Hokies and Yankees have a special relationship.
      The Hokies’ descent upon Yankee Stadium for its first appearance in the Pinstripe Bowl has invoked memories of the bond they built with the Bronx Bombers following the tragic shooting on the Blacksburg campus in April 2007. New York would make a sizable donation to the Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund. During the ensuing spring training season in 2008, the Yankees visited Blacksburg for a seven-inning exhibition game at the Hokies’ baseball stadium of English Field.

      1. There is notihng and no one you whore out your team for. Nothing.
        Yuoo wouldn’t know that…because you’re a girl,. And probably a whore .
